Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index continued to climb, closing at a record high of 1191.04 for a gain of nearly 12 points or 1%.

INK Canadian Insider Index rises 1.4% to start 2017

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. In our year end update, the Index had dipped slightly after bumping up against resistance at 1171. However, that weakness was short-lived, for the Index buoyed above its 20-day moving average (1163) on January 2nd, the first trading day of the year. The following session, the Index powerfully bounded up and through its upper Bollinger band, stretching as high as 1184. By the end of last week, the Index had notched a new 2017 intraday high at 1190.47 before finally closing at 1179.27 for a gain of 1.4% or 16 points.

INK Canadian Insider Index ends 2016 +19.88%; MACD now key

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. In our last update on Dec 18th, the Index had pulled back sharply to test its support at 1148.57 following its breakout that had reached an intraday high of 1182.57. Since then, the Index climbed quietly higher before closing the year at 1163.07. The Index was a top performer in 2016, returning 19.88% over the last year, including 6.59% over the last 3 months.

Will copper score a TKO in the new year?

One of my favourite metals this year has been copper. In large part, investors should embrace the base metal due to the election of Donald Trump. The US president-elect himself promised to implement a huge infrastructure spending program across the country to fortify America's "roads, bridges, airports, transit systems and ports."

Of course, we also have seen other base metals, like nickel and zinc soar, long before the US election took place. And with other natural resources like oil also on similar upward trajectories, I believe we are seeing clear signs of inflation, one that will lead investors into a powerful commodities rally.

INK Canadian Insider Index retests 1148 breakout level

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the overbought Index quickly rocketed to a new all-time intraday high of 1182.57 before pulling back 24 points or 2% to close at 1148.57.

Is Yellen trying to show Trump who's boss?

In our December Gold Top 20 we said that the real yields were likely to be a key driver for the gold price for the foreseeable future. While we saw some signs that real 5-year yields had peaked and were heading back towards zero, they have rallied back with a vengeance following the hawkish posture of the Federal Reserve on Wednesday. On balance, Fed officials now see three rate hikes in 2017.

INK Canadian Insider Index soars 2.5%, breaks out to all-time highs

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index began bulling its way into its challenging 1150 resistance area, before finally bursting through this wall with tremendous muscle and force. The Index closed the week with an impressive 2.5% gain and notched a brand new all-time closing high at 1172.71.

Sound bites: As the old economy rallies, high flying pot & FANG stocks at risk

In my latest Talk Digital Network interview with Jim Goddard, I highlight how Canadian insiders have tilted towards old economy stocks. This move is likely in anticipation of better economy growth across the Canadian economy, notably Western Canada. With growth potentially on the upswing, old economy value stocks are likely to be regain favour with investors who will no longer have to pay premium valuations for growth. A shift towards value investing could put the relative performance of previous high flyers such as U.S. FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google) and Canadian marijuana stocks at risk. Indeed, we have already seen some interesting moves this month with auto stocks soaring as some marijuana stocks stumble.

INK Canadian Insider Index hits new intraday high, gains 15.4% year to date

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index, which had surged back to 1132 capitulated to 1120.73 and then made an electric rise that crushed 1140 resistance and tagged 1150.38 for a brand new 2016 intraday high. The Index closed Friday at 1144.64, up 12 points for a 1% gain.

Insiders see risk of Trump inflationary illusion

Updated with Roundhouse Radio interview link at end of article.

Investors appear to be betting that the Trump years will essentially jolt the US economy out of its sub-par growth trend doldrums of the Obama-Bernanke-Yellen years. What remains unresolved is whether or not Trump policies will result in real growth or simply an inflationary mirage. Canadian gold stock insiders are betting on the latter.
